My oldest Uncle is turning 58 next week, and my family and I have pulled together a great family get together, to celebrate. My only concern was that I wouldn’t be able find a present in time, that could also fit my budget. Luckily my Aunt told me a few things he has been wanting for quit sometime. He owns a few accordions that he has had for many years now, and has been looking for an accordion backpack, to help him carry it comfortably with him when he travels. He loves to show his talents off around the world with these awesome instruments.
So I thought I would search the web a bit and see what I could find, and was so amazed to find a great website in so little time with exactly what I thought my Uncle would want and they promised to have it delivered in time for the big event. He opened his present up at his party our family threw for him, and I honestly have got to say my Uncle face lit up like Ive never seen it before. Not only was my Uncle extremely happy with his gift but my wallet is just as happy too.
It is that time of the year again that I need to start thinking of who I am going to send the birthday invitations out to for my Dad’s birthday that is coming up quicker than I care to think of. Since my mother passed away I have tried to do as much as I can to make his life an easier one and happy one and throwing him birthday parties always seems to lighten up his mood for a time.
This year he will be turning 75 so I really want to make this one a special one. He has a lot of friends, but so many live so far away or are in bad health that it makes it a real challenge to get a good list going on.
Been checking out the kobo ereader reviews in an attempt to find the best ereader out there for my teenaged daughter to purchase with her birthday money that she received last week. She seems to think that if she owns one of these that she will read more over the summer months, now how is a parent going to argue with that? She has never been a fan of reading until this last year, but really hates going to the library and there are not any books stores open around here. You have to drive well over an hour to find any book store and that really bites.
My brother’s birthday is coming up and I have been looking at mens leather briefcases!! If I’m not mistaken, my parents got him the one he’s carrying now when he graduated college back in the stone age. Well, it’s not that old but it looks like it. He’s one of those ‘what do you get because he’s got everything’ kinda guys and I think I finally found the perfect gift!
The idea of giving my nephew a gift certificate for his birthday is becoming more and more appealing as I wonder around online looking at the type of street wear that he has requested for clothes this year. This is the first year that his “wish list” didn’t revolve around all the video games that he spends so much of his gaming with, so clothes are a fresh gift idea for him that I’m trying to run with. But I’m afraid that I’m just way too out of the loop in today’s trendy boy’s (I should really say young man, he is turning 16 this year) clothing in order to make a wise selection. So that is what gift cards all about out it seems and it seems to me that this situation requires just that.
